How to remove starter on 1997 ford f150


Welcome to Fixya

Here's the procedure:

  • 1Raise the front end of the F150 off the ground with the floor jack. Place the two jack stands under the front portion of the F150's frame and then lower the truck onto the jack stands.

  • 2

    Open the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable end from the battery using the battery wrench. Push the cable off to the side where it can't accidentally contact the battery during the repair process.

  • 3

    Climb under the front passenger side of the F150 with the socket set. Locate the starter, which bolts to the side of the engine, where the transmission bell housing meets the back side of the engine block.

  • 4

    Unbolt the starter ground wire and wiring harness using the socket set. Move the wires aside.

  • 5

    Hold the body of the starter with one hand while removing the two starter mounting bolts with the other, using a socket set to do so. Never let the weight of the starter bear down on the loose bolts.

  • 6

    Pull the starter out by hand once you have removed both of the mounting bolts. Compare the old starter to your replacement, making sure they are physically identical before proceeding with the installation of the replacement unit.

  • 7

    Hold the replacement starter in position and thread the mounting bolts through the starter flange and into their mounts. Tighten them down with the socket set. Remember to never let the weight of the starter hang on the loose bolts.

  • 8

    Attach the ground wire and starter wiring harness in reverse of disconnection.

  • 9

    Lower the F150 off the jack stands with the floor jack and then reconnect the negative battery cable using the battery wrench.


  • Thank you for using Fixya!

    Starter went bad on 1997 mystique. Need to remove it and put new one on. Not sure just how to take it out whether from the top or from the bottom or through a wheel well.


    On the 2.0L remove the air intake resonators. Unbolt the starter electrical connections and mounting bolts and remove the starter from below. To install torque bolts to 15-20 ft lbs
    On the 2.5L you will need to remove the air cleaner assembly to get at the support bracket which also needs to be removed from the engine and transaxle mount. Remove the fuel line support bracket at the accellerator bracket. You can then proceed to remove the starter motor bolts and electrical connections.

    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    See Figures 4, 5 and 6

    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Raise the vehicle and support it safely on jackstands.
    3. Disconnect all cables and wires at the starter solenoid on the starter motor.

    Fig. Fig. 6: Lower the starter motor out from under the engine-1991 3.0L engine shown, other engines similar


    To install:

    1. Position the new starter assembly to the engine block and start the mounting bolts in by hand.
    2. Snug all bolts while holding the starter squarely against its mounting surface and fully inserted into the pilot hole. Tighten the mounting bolts to 15-20 ft. lbs. (21-27 Nm).
    3. Reconnect the starter cables and wires to the starter motor. Tighten the screw and washer assemblies to 70-130 inch lbs. (8-15 Nm).
    4. Lower the vehicle, then connect the negative battery cable.
    When the battery is disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 10 miles (16 km) or more for the PCM to relearn the strategy.

    Removed starter bolts but cant get it to drop didnt know if need to take loose motor mounts to raise engine for clearance


    Some times you need to move the steering in one direction or the other to get room to move the starter. Look on the New starter for a Rearward bolt coming from the Trans side. Sometimes you have 3 starter bolts.

    You don't need to lift the engine.
